Vice President Biden Makes Surprise Visit to Charleston Church Service

Vice President Joe Bide and his son Hunter made a surprise stop at the Emanuel AME church Sunday morning in Charleston, South Carolina. "We came back because our family wanted to show solidarity with your family and church," Biden said at the service. Another reason, Biden said, was to "draw strength from the church" following the death of his son Beau Biden last month. Earlier this month, nine people were massacred during a Bible study at the Emanuel AME church. The White House said the Vice President would not be attending the funeral for one of the victims, Rev. DePayne Middleton-Doctor, which was schedule later Sunday. Read »

SpaceX Rocket Erupts Shortly After Launch

SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket broke up just minutes after its launch with cargo for the International Space Station, NASA said. The Falcon took off right on time, rising into the sunny skies over Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florda at 10:21 a.m. ET. But shortly afterward, NASA spokesman George Diller reported that the launch vehicle was lost. The mission's primary objective was to deliver the Dragon to the space station with more than two and a half tons of supplies, equipment and experiments — ranging from a new docking adapter for accommodating future U.S.-built spaceships to a virtual-reality headset for the station's crew. Sunday's loss marked SpaceX's first failed mission to the space station, and extended a string of setbacks for space station resupply. Read »

Analysis: Iran Nuclear Talks Reach Critical Stages


After years of terse negotiations and internal political wrangling, crunch time has finally arrived for Iran's nuclear talks with the United States and five other world powers, writes Ali Arouzi of NBC News. Diplomats on both sides of the negotiating table have made huge strides just to reach a rough accord. Iran — and many Iranian citizens — wants to remove its burdensome economic sanctions and rejoin the international community, while the so-called P5+1 powers are trying to ensure Iran cannot produce a nuclear weapon. But hardliners in Iran, led by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei, have defied any attempts at military inspections, just as senior figures in Congress have warned they could block a pact that does not ensure the West can conduct those inspections.

Investigators Reach Deadly Alaska Plane Crash


A team of investigators is trying to determine what caused a sightseeing plane with nine people aboard to crash in remote southeast Alaska on , The Associated Press reported Saturday.
